Minnesota Golden Gophers | Big 10 (West)


Conference Analysis
Win Division (+1800), Win Conference (+9500)
SSA Model Pick: None
PJ Fleck put Western Michigan into a New Year’s 6 game, but that was in his fourth season there. In year two at Minnesota expectations aren’t high for Fleck and the Golden Gophers. It’s unlikely this team will make noise in the Big 10 conference.

Win Total Analysis
6 wins (+115/-135)
SSA Model Pick: None
Before PJ Fleck arrived this program made it to five consecutive bowl games. After missing a bowl last season, expect the Golden Gophers to once again go bowling. This is a middle of the road Big 10 team, so a six win season is expected.
